Coffee with baroque

Classical music is sweet and sappy and dull, right?

Not so and this Sunday afternoon is a chance to hear the rock and roll of the era from about 1600 to 1750.

Stile Moderno performs baroque music and comes to the Langley Community Music School March 8 as part of the Café Classico Concert series.

“This baroque performance is such a great treat,” said LCMS artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann. “The performers are stunning musicians who bring the music of this period to life with a freshness and vibrancy that is insightful, rich and wonderfully expressive.”

Using period instruments, Stile Moderno is able to create a warmer and richer sound.

Stile Moderno is violinst Arthur Neele, raised in the Netherlands. He now lives in Vancouver and spends half his time working in health care at the Critical Care Department of St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver.

He’s joined in the group by Natalie Makie and lutist Konstantin Ruslanov Bozhinov.

Makie plays the viola de gamba, and all three have long list of performing credentials around the globe.

The Café Classico event starts at 2:30 p.m., featuring a conversation with Stile Moderno’s three performers, hosted by Elizabeth Bergmann.

Learn more about baroque music, and the inspiration behind it, through the personal insights of the performers. There will be a short break with coffee and refreshments, before the performance from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Tickets for this Concerts Café Classico event are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and $10 for students. Call the box office at 604-534-2848.

The school’s Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207th St.
